Sakkos calls for more support
Yogyakarta: Vic Vipers FC head coach Miltiadis Sakkos has called for more support for Australian futsal after his side's against FC EREM in Group C brought their AFC Futsal Club Championship Indonesia 2018 campaign to an end on Monday.
Vic Vipers came close to scoring to a win when they produced a second half fightback against FC EREM but their two goals were not enough as the Kyrgyz Republic outfit ran out 4-2 winners to take second spot in Group C.
Sakkos, although disappointed with the result, was pleased with his charges who performed admirably but also stressed that more support back home in Australia would be helpful for the development of futsal in the country.

“In Australia, futsal is an amateur sport. These boys have regular jobs. We don’t have the opportunity to train everyday like a lot of these sides do," said Sakkos.
“I think we’ve shown that we if had the chance or the opportunity to prepare with a professional approach like some of these sides. I do believe we were just as good if not better than EREM or Al Sailiya.
“I just hope one day, there will be even more support and I am sure we will be able to do better.”
“We made a couple of amateur mistakes today, we had a lot of opportunities, we should have scored more goals. They (FC EREM) deserved to go through because they were more consistent.”
